Hummus sold at Walmart and Target nationwide recalled over Listeria fears

A popular brand of hummus sold at Walmart and Target stores nationwide is being recalled due to concerns over a possible listeria contamination.

House of Thaller, a Knoxville, Tennessee, company, is voluntarily recalling selected 10-ounce packages of hummus after a supplier notified the company that one of its ingredients had the potential to be contaminated with the deadly toxin Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes is a pathogen which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems, according to the FDA.
